The LEJOG 1400 is a 1405 km cycling event sanctioned by Audax UK (AUK) next due to take place between 28 July – 02 August 2024.
What is it?
The LEJOG 1400 starts at the headland of Land’s End, Cornwall, the far south-western corner of the UK mainland and finishes at the village of John o’ Groats, the far north-eastern corner of the UK mainland.
The event is a randonnee, not a race! Those taking part will have a maximum of 116-hours & 40-minutes to complete the challenging 1405 km route.
Land’s End to John o’ Groats is a longstanding route from the southwest tip of the UK to the northern tip – from Cornwall through the Cotswolds, the Midlands, the North, and finishing off in the Scottish Highlands, a windswept land of glacial lakes and an economy of trees. A succession of different terrains, architectures, and history. Celtic lands at the start and finish.
Randonnees are traditionally non-competitive/non-commercial long-distance cycling events where the emphasis is on completing the route and distance within the time limit.
